Best Ways to Liven Up Your Christmas Bash


You might be thinking that the last thing the Christmas bash needs this year is to be “livened up”! However, many Christmas parties can be stayed or cold affairs, with awkward silences, or guests that don’t mingle, or even worse don’t even get on!

Here we look at the best ways to liven up your Christmas bash in a positive and fun way – how to make it more enjoyable and more engaging and how the memories that you create are made for all the right reasons.

Design

The venue has a lot to answer for when it comes to a party, you need one that creates a feeling of warmth and interaction – not row upon row of tables with people sat next to others that they may not really know.

You need the layout and colour scheme to compliment any theme that the party has – for example, if the theme is movies, part of the design could be having lifesize cardboard cutouts of favourite actors dotted around.

Entertainment

People are that little bit more likely to be engaging and participating at the Christmas bash, probably having had their inhibitions slightly tempered by alcohol. But the entertainment that you provide can be key too.

Traditionally, there will be music, but how about thinking outside of the normal parameters – rather than a DJ playing cheesy pop, how about a jazz band, or covers band. Sure, you could do both, but a little variety will make for even better memories.

Food & Drink

You’ll need to give them something, so make it special. Think about the theme, and again if it is Hollywood, maybe give cocktails as the welcome drink, or after dinner treat. As for the food, catering for a large number can sometimes mean bland, but it doesn’t have to be like that – think of cool canapes and interesting mains. See it from the eyes of the guest – what will they be thinking?

Gifts

Have you thought about ways to share gifts with the guests? Now simply having an invite to the party may seem like gift enough if you are footing the bill, but what about the little extras.

You could have a free photo-booth with dress up costumes, so that people can get snapped together, or even with the lifesize cardboard cutouts. This could give people some great fun photos to take home and by which to remember the night in the future.

There doesn’t have to be a gift bag per se, but any little take home bonus will always be well received, and will create another level of loyalty and goodwill from your guests.

You do want your party to be lively and full of fun. No you do not want it to descend into a farce or free-for-all, but if you handle it properly and manage expectations beforehand then there is no reason it will. What you are doing is looking to liven up your Christmas bash so that everyone has fun, plain and simple. With these tips and ideas you’ll be well on your way to ensuring exactly that!


The Essential Guide to Organising a Stress Free Outdoor Party


The Australian summer has well and truly arrived and it heralds a season of outdoor parties and barbeques, with long summer evenings and comfortable temperatures. Most homeowners will host at least one outdoor event in their garden, if not many more, and with that in mind, here is an informative guide to ensure that the party goes off with a bang!

  • Hire a Marquee – This is the perfect shading and cover, and with literally hundreds of various shapes and sizes, there’s bound to be something just right. If the party starts in the early afternoon, shading is vital, and with the chance of a rain shower or two, you can’t take a chance that the party will be a washout. There is affordable marquee hire in Melbourne, and just about every Australian city, and a simple online search in the best place to start your quest.
  • Party Supplies – Unless you are a seasoned party host, there will be many things you need. Make a list (right down to serviettes) and then source an online party supplies company, who can literally deliver anything you require from party streamers to a dance floor. This takes the stress out of the arranging, and with just about everything you need, there is no need to shop anywhere else.

  • Invite your Neighbours – This is the perfect way to avoid any unpleasantness regarding noise and car parking, and with all your neighbours in attendance, you can wind up the volume a little. If by any chance they are unable to attend, the invite will ensure there are no bad feelings if the party carries on into the early hours of the morning.
  • Stock Up with Alcohol – No one knows your guests like the host, and when you calculate what type of drinks they prefer, make sure you add a little, just in case. Most people will bring a bottle or a case of beer, and with a big ice cooler stored away in the corner, all beer can be iced and ready to go. Ice is something you can never have enough of with a party, and if you don’t have an ice making machine, you can hire one for the occasion.
  • Audio-Visual Equipment – You may already have a decent sound system and by placing the speakers outside, you can create the perfect party atmosphere. Failing that, the marquee hire company is likely to have a range of state of the art audio-visual systems for rent, complete with a dance floor, which will save your lawn from serious damage.

Modern party hire companies stock absolutely everything a party host might need, and with online solutions, a simple search will take you to their website, and after placing the order, they will deliver to your door. This allows you to actually enjoy the experience, rather than running around checking that everything is in place.
